Rappstar The Rockstar
Jordan Rapp's 4th Annual Charity Challenge, which culminated at the Ironman World Championship in Kona this past October, raised over $71,000 for World Bicycle Relief bringing his lifetime fundraising total for WBR to just over $175,000.
In a video by the Ironman Foundation, Jordan explains why racing for a cause is important to him, "This is what keeps me going for my second, my fifth Ironman. This is the thing that's bigger than me--this means more than crossing the finish line ahead of everybody else and bringing home a paycheck and some bonuses." Jordan has consistently showed that racing for the Power of Bicycles inspires and motivates him, both personally and professionally.
But why WBR? Jordan explains, "There are numerous facts and figures about how much more a farmer can carry, how much farther an aid worker can travel, or how much faster a student can get to school [with a bicycle]. But, ultimately, all that data shows the same thing--$134 can change someone’s world forever."
